Fire detection systems
A smoke alarm, heat detector, and/or flame detector provides an instant alert when fire or smoke is present. Your employees can react quickly when they hear the sound whether they need to use a fire extinguisher or exit the workplace. In accordance with Cal/OSHA regulations, regularly test and maintain your fire detection systems. You also need to make sure these devices are protected from corrosion or other potential damage and provide enough warning time for employees to evacuate the workplace.
In addition to your alarm systems, remind your employees that if they smell something burning, see smoke, or flames to speak up right away.
Hazardous chemical storage
Many workplaces have hazardous chemicals present. These could be as simple as cleaning solutions you store at the office or large containers of hazardous materials stored in warehouses or transported on trucks or ships. In all cases, they pose a risk for potential workplace fires. When storing chemicals, make sure to keep incompatible groups apart. Check the safety data sheets and the hazard labels for further information.
